    Video: Grizzly Bears vs Campsite - 1

    Zoo attendees in Billings, Mont., were treated to a scene of destruction Saturday as grizzly bears Bruno and Ozzy were let loose in a fake campsite to do what bears do in the woods. The bears shredded a tent, a sleeping bag, and chairs; knocked over and tore through a garbage can; and ripped into food containers. The only thing that survived was a bear-proof cooler that neither bruin could manage to get into.  

    The purpose of the demonstration was to allow Bruno and Ozzy to work through some deep emotional issues both had carried since childhood. OK...

    The real reason for the show was to demonstrate how most bear-proof items aren’t bear proof at all. [ Read Full Post ]

    Whitetail Hunting Tips: Secrets to Off-Season Scouting - 1

    While most hunters spend their spring weekends waiting for turkey season, Aaron Milliken spends hour after hour studying Google Earth. He dedicates so much time to the virtual mapping program partly because it's his job, but also because he knows it's the first critical step in finding and patterning mature bucks. Milliken is a Land Specialist with Whitetail Properties (a real-estate company that deals some of the best deer hunting land in the country) and it's his job to assess properties and predict how trophy bucks will utilize them.

    Earlier this month I spent a weekend scouting and shed hunting with Milliken on his home turf in west-central Illinois. Later this year we'll hunt the rut in this classic Midwestern whitetail country, but first we need to find the right place to hunt. Here's what we did to get started, first with aerial scouting through Google Earth and then by putting boots on the ground.

    After 6 Years, Hunter Finally Takes Monster Wild Hog in North Carolina - 5

    A hunter from Conetoe, N.C. killed this enormous wild hog after tracking the animal for a month. The huge hog maxed out a set of scales at 500 pounds, according to North Carolina Sportsman.

    For six years the hog evaded members of the White Oak Ranch Hunting Club in the Indian Woods area of Bertie County, N.C. Hunters were aware of the hog for several years, and in 2011 game cameras started capturing photos as it roamed the 1,886-acre club. [ Read Full Post ]

    Essential Knot for Hunting: How to Tie the Clove Hitch - 0

    The clove hitch excels in all kinds of outdoor applications. It's great anytime you need to quickly tie a rope to something – a tree, tent pole, fence post, truck hitch, hunting buddy.

    I use it to anchor my pack rope to the sawbucks on a packsaddle. It enables me to sling elk quarters on my pack horse and never worry about them slipping off. Best of all, it’s easy to tie. Once you learn the technique, you can tie it in the dark, and without even thinking about it. [ Read Full Post ]

    Video: Dogs Chase Deer Through a School - 1

    Three deer and two dogs broke into a middle school in Lothian, Md. early Monday morning, leading officials to cancel classes and causing up to $5,000 in damages.

    This surveillance footage from Southern Middle School shows a deer crashing through a glass entrance door into the school lobby around 4 a.m. Two deer race inside and a third deer follows, scrambling across the floor. One of the three charges the glass doors and bounces off before turning and fleeing deeper into the building. It’s either an escape attempt or a last-ditch effort to scare away the dog on the other side of the glass.

    Video: Hunter Stops Charging Boar Just in Time - 2

    It’s the moment every dangerous game hunter dreads could happen … A charge.

    A hunter in Sweden faced such a moment when a Eurasian boar flanked him from the left, according to the individual that posted the video. The hunter had barely enough time to register the charge let alone take aim.  Fortunately the instinct of the hunter proved true and he stopped the charge literally at his feet. [ Read Full Post ]

    Video: Bear Tries Climbing Across Rope to Steal Bait - 0

    This video comes from Garrett Brothers Outfitting and is a great example of just how strong black bears really are. The young bear scales a tree and then hangs on the rope for way longer than what we expect.

    The quote at the end of the video says it all: "That was amazing, eh?" [ Read Full Post ]
